We wanted an escape from Provence and Le Mas seemed to fit the bill.
Terrific scenery and the final six km on D10 into Le Mas with soaring rock faces and deep green valleys was certainly exciting. Mist hung in the valleys as we finaslly arrived at Auberge Le Charamel. Isabelle and Regis are wonderful hosts and for Isabelle nothing is too much trouble. She is just the perfect attentive hostess.
The isolated location means that most diners stay over. Who would really want to navigate the D10 in the dark after a few drinks? The other guests were a couple of middle aged motorbike riders and a youthful couple who announced they had ridden up on their push bikes from Nice. Really? Small but nice clean bedrooms.
Lovely ambience in the dining room, with views out over the misty mountain valleys, chilled champagne. The "Romantic Package" includes room, champers, dinner and continental breakfast. We also chose the matching wines for each of the three courses.
The matching of a Beaumes de Venise muscat with the foie gras entree was terrific.
Lovely welcoming hosts and get-away-from-it all location. Good value at just less than 200E for two for the dinner bed and breakfast package.
